I have effectively home schooled my four children from pre-K through 9th grade in all subjects by using a mixture of traditional methods, personalizing manipulatives and utilizing memory tricks to help them succeed. I am willing to help your student do the same. Many times a creative, new approach to the presentation of the material will instill the self-confidence for mastery. Every student absorbs lessons through a variety of learning styles. I am willing to provide the manipulatives, or help your child create their own to help them succeed.
In the past I have tutored struggling students and helped them become confident in their own abilities to succeed. Sometimes the problem lies with a firm grasp of the fundamentals that a teacher doesn't have time to back up and review. Sometimes the problem is merely having the concept represented in an alternate way. Sometimes the problem is that it just takes a little extra practice to master what the class is learning, and the pace is a little too quick.
